Rosa Eglanteria aka Rubignosa is an alien and invasive species introduced to Lesotho. There is various explanations for the way in which the plant got introduced but that is spread very rapidly is certain. There was also the reasoning that it should be planted in dongas and erosion gullies to prevent the huge soil erosion problem that Lesotho experience.
Every rosehip is picked by hand.
